I Can Be a Missionary Too

“Therefore, if ye have desires to serve God ye are called to the work” (D&C 4:3).

  1. Brett was excited. He had just gotten a letter from his big brother Tony. Tony was a missionary. Before Tony left, Brett promised him that he would do missionary work too.

  2. Brett, did you know that when you serve others, you are doing missionary work? I can’t wait to hear about all the missionary work you are doing. Love, Tony

  3. Mom, I want to serve others so I can do missionary work like Tony. What can I do?

  4. I know Mrs. Hampton could use some help raking her leaves on Saturday. Would that be a good way to do missionary work?

    Yes! Then I could write Tony and tell him all about it.

  5. The next Saturday, Brett sat down to write Tony a letter.

    Dear Tony, I hope you are having as much fun as I am doing missionary work. We helped Mrs. Hampton today in her yard. She gave us a plate of cookies. Dad asked her if she wanted to come to church with us, and she said yes. Love, Brett

  6. Brett folded the paper and stuck the letter and one leaf from Mrs. Hampton’s yard inside an envelope.

  7. I can be a missionary too!
